Bennigan’s was established in Atlanta, Georgia in 1976 by Norman Brinker, a legend among restaurateurs. Thirty-six years later, Bennigan’s is still the iconic brand loved by all and is re-establishing itself as the leader in casual dining. Committed to the welcoming, friendly and festive spirit of Irish Hospitality, Bennigan’s offers more generous pours and portions and goes above and beyond the call of duty to deliver Legendary experiences to every guest, every meal, every day.

In 2011, Bennigan’s began a Legendary comeback by re-energizing the beloved brand with a commitment to bring memorable dining experiences to every guest, every day. This remarkable resurgence began with a brand refresh at the company’s two corporate locations and a plan to bring the same menu optimization and service enhancements to current and future franchise partners.

The mission at Bennigan’s is to deliver exceptional service to every guest, every meal, every day. In order to deliver this service, we must remember to focus on those essential elements that will allow us to provide quality service with a bit of Irish hospitality on the side. The Green Team at Bennigan’s has gained greater empathy for our franchisees and guests and strives to make their Bennigan’s experience Legendary. 

Creating our Legendary perception is key to bringing guests back for more. We embrace and honor our 36 years of heritage. By establishing a warm, friendly atmosphere, we ensure that all that come to Bennigan’s will leave with a lifetime emotional connection to our brand.
